What are the labor laws regarding overtime?


Answer by  patti (29325)

In most cases, overtime is paid at a rate of time-and-a-half for hours worked over 40 for hourly employees. The determination of holidays, holiday hours worked, more than 50 hours worked, and related matters falls to the employer. An employer can require overtime.

The laws will differ based on what state you are working in, so you need to be more specific. You will also need to determine if your state considers overtime at 40 hours total per week, or anything over 8 hours daily, or if union contracts can change it.

Labor law for overtime entitles a non exempt worker to an overtime pay of one and a half times the regular pay after completing forty hours of work in a workweek.

Labor laws can vary from state to state, so it is best to check the laws where you live at. Typically 1. 5 times hourly wages every hour past 40

Federal-All hours worked over 40 during 7 consecutive days must be paid an additional. 5 times the hourly rate (time-and-a-half) if the worker is non-exempt. If state and federal laws are different, employers must follow whichever is more beneficial to the employee. Exempt workers are not entitled to overtime.

Labor laws are set by States and the Federal government. Most states require extra pay for time worked over 40 hours. Federal law has some exceptions that don't require this.
